*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- The EU Council seems Favorable to the Authorisation of More and Different Vaccines, if they meet the required Conditions, in order to Boost EU Citizens' Vaccinations against the Virus, according to what Replied to a relevant "Eurofora"'s Question a Top EU Official, in a Video-Press Briefing with Brussels, at the Eve of an important EU Summit of Heads of State/Government there, on 24-25 June 2021.

The EU Summit is due to Discuss and Decide on Europe's Anti-Virus' Policy and Recovery Issues, as the 1st specialized Topic of that High-Levell meeting, Tomorrow Afternoon, around 4 p.m. Before that, at about 1 p.m., the Heads of State/Government are due to Meet and Discuss with UNO's Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, on "Global Challenges", (which eventualy, might Include also the Pandemic.

 - "Eurofora" had explained that the Reason for which we Raised that Question, was mainly in order to Help the Vaccination Succeed, and, inter alia, also to Aleviate some Fears or reserves Notoriously expressed by Various People in Europe and/or elsewhere in the World. In this regard, Already, f.ex., even the German Minister of Health, Jens Spahn, (CDU), has Recently been reported as Advising to Authorize, at least, 2 or 3 More Vaccines, f.ex. of a more Classical Technology, in order to Bypass the Reserves of some.

Meanwhile, it's well Known that, in Some Countries and/or Sectors of the Society, Currently, there are, still, More People who Continue to Hesitate, for Various Reasons, than Elsewhere, (as, f.ex., in France, sometimes, even the Members of a Medical Staff, etc).

It's also true that, Until Now, one of the Problems seems to be also the Fact that, among the Few (4) Vaccines already Authorized by the EU, one has been Notoriously almost Discreditated ("Astrazeneka"), another seems Less Efficient for all, ("Johnson"), and the 2 Others (the Turkish "BNT/Pfizer" and the Armenian's "Moderna"), adopted a Novel, Not Yet well Known, m.RNA Technology, wbile there is Not even 1 "Classical" Vaccine... On the Contrary, f.ex., China has Recently Published Official Health Authorities' Article claiming that they would, Already, have, at least Three (3) "Classic" Vaccines Authorized and used against this Virus !

Last, but not least, Most People doN't even Know, clearly and timely enough, How Many and Which Vaccines might, eventualy, be available, throughout the whole World. F.ex. Russians recently Claimed to have "3" Vaccines Ready, But, in fact,Only One (1) is really Known by Most People... The "WHO", at nearby Geneva, made some Efforts, Recently, to Better Inform on the Existing Vaccines, among the Various Countries, Authorized or Not Yet, But such Data are Not Always Complete, Neither so Easy to Access, in real Practice, yet, even if they have the merit to exist...

=> In such Circumstances, the Position taken by the above-mentioned Senior Official of the EU Council, in Reply to that "Eurofora"s Question, (speaking Under Condition of Anonymity), appeared, a priori, Adamant :

     - "On the Different Vaccines, that are, Possibly, to be Validated :

- "That is for EMA to Decide !", (i.e., up to EU's Independent Experts' relevant body).

- "As Soon as We (EU's Political Authorities) have a Positive Decision by the EMA, the Vaccine Will bave Access at the Market", he Vowed.

=> "I Understand that, When there is a Discussion into the Rolling Review, that they Need outstanding Conditions, that are Not Validated, that means that the (required) Conditions are Not Met !".

>>> - Simply Because "there canNot be Any Other Answer"..., he Firmly Stressed.

I.e., in Other Words, to put it in a Nutshell, the Top Official of EU Council Honestly Believes that, as a matter of Principle, Any efficient Vaccine which really Meets the relevant Conditions, Should, Indeed, be Soon Authorized by the competent EU Technical Services, and Made Available to EU Citizens.

"Eurofora" can't but Congratulate the EU Council for such a Crystal-Clear Position, as far as Principles are concerned.

Therefore, we can't but Hope that this will, Indeed, be Done, Also in Real Practice, (i.e. as far as those "Independent Experts", linked mainly to EU Commission, are concrned : Comp. Supra), asap !

Particularly when there are several Human Lives at Stake...

*Paris/ACM/12 October 2008/-

When Europeans really feel a vital need to urgently launch common replies to challenging World Crisis, as the present Financial turmoil of Global Markets, they forge new decision-making tools and new dynamics :

The 1st in History EuroZone Heads of State and Government Summit, organized in Paris at the invitation of French President, and current EU chair, Nicolas Sarkozy, with the participation of 15 national leaders and EU institutions' chairmen, partly enlarged to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, after a highly symbolic duo with German Chancelor Angie Merkel, at General De Gaulle's birth-village, 50 Years after he welcomed there former German chancellor Adenauer (1958-2008), may have not one, but two results :

- The first, and more urgent, was to launch an "ambitious", "coherent", and "efficient" common European movement, able to stimulate "solutions" to the World Economic Crisis, as Sarkozy anounced from the outset : State Garantees (to new Bank debts up to 5 years), fresh Capital input (f.ex. by buying shares), support to distressed banks, (while also restructuring them), incite the European Central Bank to facilitate commerial bills europe-wide, etc.

"Acting swiftly", from tomorrow, national measures will quantify all these targets, with coordinated actions from all EuroZone's Governments : France, Germany, Italy and others, decided to anounce, at the same time, such concrete measures, according to agreements that we have already made all together, revealed Sarkozy at the final Press Conference, flanked by EuroZone's chairmen : EuroGroup's Jean-Claude Juncker, and Central European Bank's Jean-Claude Truchet, as well as EU Commission's Jose Baroso, to solemnly stress the will to find common European solutions.

- "United and Determined, all EuroZone's Countries will act to prove that Citizens can Trust" the Economy, Sarkozy concluded. If we attract also all EU's 27 countries, Wednesday in Brussels, then we can coordinate action with our American Friends at a Global level, he anounced.

- "With this new Toolbox, we do not want to serve Bankers, but to work for Europe and its Citizens' interests", added Juncker.

- "For the moment, we want to act urgently to regulate the Crisis. But the time will come when those responsible for this, will have to account for their actions. Yes to real Capitalism, No to Speculators. Those who abused, will face sanctions, Sarkozy warned.


Need stimulates activities which create new organs, say biologists, and Gordon Brown, compatriot of Spencer, the famous bio-Historian, would certainly not deny that, after his surprise visit to EuroZone's Summit in Paris, which attracted him one hour more than scheduled...

Decisions include also the creation of a Crisis-management European mechanism, which "requires constant Monitoring", as well as strengthening Economic policy cooperation between EuroZone's countries.

Sarkozy will be judged by History not just by the immediate Economic results, expected at the end of this week's decision-making proces at National and EU level, but also by the more far-reaching consequences at the aftermath of this Historic EuroZone 1st Summit : Will it succeed to become a precursor forging a New era in European institution's revitalization ?

Significantly, the French President sat, during discussions, between German Chancelor Merkel, and British Prime Minister Brown, facing the chairmen of EuroGroup, Juncker, ECB : Truchet, and EU Commission, Baroso, with Prime Ministers of Spain, Zapatero (a hot partisan of EuroZone's Summit) at his right side, and Italy's Berlusconi, at his left, surrounded by Austrian, Belgian, Cyprus', Finland's, Greece's, and Ireland's leaders, as well as Slovakia's, Slovenia's, Portugal's, Netherlands', Malta's and Luxembourg's leaders.

Meanwhile, those who tabled for a rift between French and German positions were faced with a smiling Merkel at De Gaulle-Adenauer's meeting place, a sunny Saturday morning, and a particularly active-looking Merkel inside the French Presidential Palace at Elysee's gardens on Sunday, (as happy few photographers discovered)..

- "De Gaulle's hilltop, at Colombey-les-2-Eglises, gave an astonishing overview to a huge landscape, entirely surrounded by splendid Nature, as far as eyes could see", said to EuroFora an obviously charmed German Journalist.

She was describing Saturday's inauguration of a High-Tech Memorial close to the Historic Giant Double Lorraine's Cross, built by famous Novelist Andre Malraux, to perpetuate the Memory of his famous call for "Resistance" to NAZI, and his vision for the creation of New Institutions and Franco-German reconciliation, to foster Europe's role in the World, also for the Future.
